ACCUCINCH SYSTEM GOALS
- Reduce the size of the left ventricle and reduce wall stress
- Provide support and strength to the left ventricle
- Initiate a biological process of reverse remodeling to improve myocardial contractility and overall cardiac function
Quality of Life
Improved Functional Capacity
Improved Life Expectancy
HOW THE ACCUCINCH SYSTEM WORKS
- The left ventricle (LV) is accessed through the aortic valve using the AccuCinch Guide catheter
- A guide wire is then placed within the LV, behind the chordae, using the AccuCinch NavCath
- The AccuCinch TracCath is advanced over the guide wire to provide a template for implant delivery
- During AccuCinch Implant delivery, a series of anchors, each separated by a spacer to distribute force, are delivered over a cable are placed into the LV wall
- The AccuCinch Implant is then cinched and secured with a nitinol lock to reduce the size of the LV
THE CORCINCH-HF STUDY
Patients are currently being enrolled in The CORCINCH-HF Study, a prospective, randomized, open-label, multicenter, international, clinical safety and efficacy investigation.
